The use of this document is limited to the Subscriber to whom it has been supplied who has undertaken not to permit its inspection by, or supply to, other persons, nor to reproduce it in whole or in part without the prior written permission of the Associations.

Rules And Guidelines In Respect Of Subscribing To "WORLDSCALE"



A subscription to Worldscale runs from January to December of any one year and is renewable each year. Each October, renewal invoices are despatched to subscribers. All subscribers making payment before 1st December will receive their schedules before 1st January of the following year. A subscription to the web site cannot be obtained until a subscription to the Schedule has been taken out.



A subscription payment and completed application form must be received before a Schedule is despatched and before a web site licence is activated.



Subscribers sign an undertaking on the application form relating to the use of Worldscale. Only the name and address shown on the application form are the registered subscribers and no Worldscale Schedules or information may be passed to any other companies whether they be Associate, Parent or Sister companies or branch offices. All offices wishing to use Worldscale will have to subscribe in their own right.



A subscription entitles the subscriber to one free Worldscale Schedule plus all updates issued throughout the year. They are also entitled to telephone, telex, fax or email the Associations for any rates not included in the Schedule.



Subscribers are also entitled to purchase additional Schedules at a reduced fee for use only within their own offices and not to be passed on to any other persons. Similarly extra licences for the website may be purchased at a set fee.



All content and information, including the freight rates, contained on the website are the copyright of Worldscale. Users may download printed copies of the material displayed on this website for personal use only, provided that each user retains the copyright notice identifying Worldscale as the owner. Users may not print, copy, reproduce, download, republish, broadcast, transmit, display, modify or re-use the material from this website for any other purpose, including in particular any purpose which re-sells or publicly re-uses the materials.



Subscribers should be aware that the Worldscale Associations will take such action as considered necessary, including immediate termination of a subscription and with it access to Worldscale, in the event of the Associations discovering clear evidence of an infringement of copyright or the terms of the subscription agreement as outlined herein.



The contents of this website and users' access to it are governed by English law and all users submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts in relation to any dispute arising out of it.


While at all times we do endeavour to be as helpful as possible to our subscribers we do urge them to realise that it would be impossible to produce the Schedule and give a service at the current fee, if subscribers order additional Schedules to pass to other offices. This would also be an infringement of the copyright law in respect of Worldscale.
